About us

My name is Donna Long I have traveled extensively all over the world, but I call Cookeville my home. With over 10 years experience in real estate in the Cookeville area as well as my 20 years at TTU I have met wonderful people from all walks of life and built a network of people who follow my sales. Including an industry that supports me and who I trust to make sure to get the most accurate prices for your items. I have conducted sales all over the Cookeville area, and also have conducted sales in Florida, developing a vast knowledge of antiques, furniture and collectibles. I love allowing old items to continue on and give new people the joy they brought their previous owner for years, allowing treasures to be shared and turning treasures into cash for those who are going to a different chapter in their life.


Have you got a “House full of things?”

At Cottagelady Estate & Moving Sales, we recognize each client has different needs. Some need our help because a loved one has passed away, or they may be transitioning into a nursing facility, moving, or just ready to down-size. We can help you facilitate any and all of these needs.I will meet with you one on one, I will meet with seniors, their children, estate executors & trustees to evaluate the sale, then I will completely & quickly clear out the entire contents of the family home. Turning those treasures into cash.
